Get Living is the UK’s premier build-to-rent operator, managing over 3,000 homes across London and Manchester.

Best known for East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village in Stratford, Get Living has revolutionised the private rental sector, offering a simpler, more positive rental experience.

 

With thousands of residences in buildings scattered over four sites, Get Living recognised the need to increase the efficiency of their incumbent digital signage communication system. Airwave was tasked to update Get Living’s signage infrastructure and recommended LG signage displays, installing a mixture of models and sizes, including:

  • 43-inch SM5KE Series
  • 55-inch SM5KE Series
  • 65-inch UH5E Series

The SM5KE Series features a low-footprint design and system-on-chip technology, negating the need for media players and extra hardware. Run by LG’s powerful webOS smart platform, LG’s CMS provides the user with a one-stop signage solution.

The UH5E Series enjoys similar features, but with added functionality – the most notable being an ultra-high definition display.

LG’s hardware provides a robust and reliable backbone to Get Living’s signage infrastructure, however the brains of the system is provided by Otrum’s signage software.

With ease of use as a founding principle, Otrum signage is a powerful content scheduler, offering multiple customisable templates, integration with web services, web portal management – all hosted on the cloud.

Airwave used LG’s SOC technology to implement Otrum signage on each of the newly installed displays and, using raspberry pi media players, retro-fitted Otrum on existing displays.

We are extremely happy with Airwave’s solution” said Get Living Infrastructure Project Manager, Lucasz Mikita “the displays are on 24-7, yet they’ve remained problem free thus far.”

It’s been an honour collaborating with Airwave to provide a system for Get Living” said LG Sales Manager Barrie O’Neill “the screens look very much in keeping with Get Living’s modern aesthetic!”
